Are you not entertained?
Episode: 12, Season 2
Hosts: Roger Mitchell - Grant Williams - Giles Morgan
Guest/s: John Hopkins
Today, much of what sport has always meant to true fans, has been lost in a blizzard of corporate communications, fireworks and froth. As a result, the attachments, that were once so strong, seem more trivial in the global age of televised sport as entertainment. What was once authentic, is increasingly staged. In this podcast, we’ll get back to the things that sport has always meant to true fans.
Season 2, Episode 12: The lads are joined by the legendary golf author John Hopkins, to discuss golfing heroes, the beauty and the codes of great sports writing. John brilliantly takes us through a million anecdotes from inside the ropes. It is indeed wonderful listening from a true craftsman. In the margins, a very honest discussion around the resignation of the CEO of English football. Finally, some chat around sports films, like Ford v Ferrari.
